Understanding Consumer Behavior: A Survey on Colgate_1
Goal of the Survey
Colgate is a known all across the globe as an umbrella brand which is used to purchase
the products related to oral hygiene, toothpastes, toothbrushes, mouthwashes and
dental floss. The underlying idea of the survey conducted on Colgate is to understand
the motivation, perception, attitude, culture and the individual lifestyle of people who in
the recent times have purchased the product (Esch et. al., 2009).
Sample Size
The survey has been conducted with a Sample size of 38 people, and these are the
people who have recently purchased the company’s product.
Data Analysis and Key Findings
This section will discuss the findings of the data from the collected responses and
analyse to gain insight on the consumer behaviour while making their choice in picking
Colgate.
Question 1:
The first question has been designed to understand the reason from the sample
population as to what motivates them or urges them to buy products of Colgate. The
options are provided to the sample on the basis of brand attributes of Colgate and the
factors which makes much sense for the respondents. The above analysis shows that
out of 6 factors of motivation, maximum people engage with Colgate due to the brand
name, and the second reason is the ease of availability.
Brand name is the biggest motivation to buy the products of Colgate, this implies that
the brand which started selling products since 1873 has created a good brand name in
the market (Netemeyer et. al., 2004). The people believe in the offering of the company
and associate with the brand name and image of the company. The second reason of
ease of availability is an indication of the effective supply chain management of the
company. The downside is that the marketing and promotion strategy of Colgate is not
highly effective in motivating people to buy the product.

Question 2:
The second question has been drafted to understand the Pre-purchase behaviour or
perception of the customers with Colgate. This is helpful in evaluating their post
purchase behaviour after using the product (Vyas, 2018). 60% of the respondent had a
positive perception about the product of Colgate, which is a very healthy sign for the
company. As it already has a positive brand image in the market which evokes positive
emotion of the people.
Question 3:
The question here has been designed to evaluate the post purchase behaviour of the
customers after they have tried and tested the product. This helps in understanding the
change in the perception of the customers after actually trying the product (Rossiter,
2014). The Positive and noteworthy thing here is 57.89% of people felt positive after
trying the product and almost 18.42% people felt very positive with the company’s
offering. Another noteworthy thing is that 21% of the respondent felt neutral even after
trying the product, this implies that product did meet their expectation at some levels, if
not at all. The learning here is that the company has to leverage on this positive
sentiments of the customers and push the product to these customers.
Question 4:
The next question is based on understanding the emotions of the customers in making
their choice with Colgate. The question will help in assessing the parameters with which
the customers most strongly associate in the longer run. The result and the findings are
pretty encouraging for Colgate. The highest number of respondent (42%) feel that the
products of the company are highly reliable, thus in their mind they have a very reliable
image of the company. The implication here is that any new product which gets
launched in the market, people would buy it because they believe the product and the

company is reliable. 18.42% of the respondents feel energetic after using the product;
this implies the freshness the product gives to its customers. Its only 2% of the people
who felt negative emotion of anger with the product, which can be mildly ignored.
Question 5:
The next question is designed to assess the adoption of Colgate in the family
environment. It would help in understanding the penetration of the product in the
household, and whether people use more than one oral hygiene company product in
their families (Vriens & Martins Alves, 2017). The result is really shocking for Colgate, it
has been pointed that only 47% of the people said that everyone in their family uses
Colgate. Whereas remaining 53% of the people use different companies’ product in their
household. The learning here is that the company has to better understand these
families and their perception for not using Colgate. Based on that the company has to
create strategy to target the left out consumer families who do not use the product in
their house.
Question 6:
The next question has been designed and created to further segment and understand
the age group of people who uses Colgate in their everyday lives. This will help the
brand to further create engagement strategies for the customers and entice them in the
company’s offering. Another specific reason behind this question is to understand the
taste and preference of individuals in the family (Panigrahi, 2015). The results of the
findings are something which are really encouraging for the company. Almost 60% of
the people using the product are adults and family audience, something which is apt
with the target market and positioning of the company. Another positive aspect here is
that 18.42% of Children in the family use the product; this is really encouraging as this
customer audience will grow up to become brand loyalist of Colgate. This is something
which the company has been eying for a long time, engage with the Children and make
them like Colgate and grow up to become brand loyalists.
